William Bell Performing at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, Memphis, 2012

Concerts, entertainment, events, music

William Bell returns to the neighborhood where it all began on Saturday 4/28/12 at the Stax to the Max Soulsville Street Festival, backed by Memphis’ own Bo-Keys, with the sun setting in the west. A supreme end to a truly awesome day in Memphis. 


The Bo-Keys are a living repository of Memphis soul. Unlike many other bands that attempt to recreate the classic sounds of soul, the Bo-Keys involve Memphis soul legends like Howard Grimes, Nokie Taylor and Archie Mitchell, and back soul greats like Percy Wiggins and William Bell. They were the final act at the Stax to the Max Soulsville festival in South Memphis on Saturday, 4/28/12. Learn more about the Bo-Keys here: http://www.thebokeys.com/.

Austin’s Mingo Fishtrap (@Mingo_Fishtrap) is a funky, soulful, horn-and-B3 organ driven ensemble, with heavy Stax and Memphis overtones. It was only logical that they would appear at the Stax to the Max Souslville Street Festival, and they amazed the crowd with their feel-good version of alternative soul.
